Sketch Girl!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Well I found another challenge to participate in.  As if I didn't have enough challenges to play in already!  This is a bi-weekly sketch challenge blog called SKETCH GIRL!  And this is their sketch #15.

I used the color challenge from my favorite online Stampin' Up! community, STAMPIN' ADDICTS.  If you love SU! products as much as I do, you should come hang out with us!!  This is for challenge SACC50.  The colors to use are Ruby Red, More Mustard, and Pumpkin Pie.  My first thought was, oh, those are fall colors.  But after looking at a couple of the samples, I changed my mind.  They really are beautiful for spring colors too. 

This card also fits the theme challenge going on at the PALS PAPER ARTS blog, which is to use flowers.  Well now, that's an easy challenge! 

Here's my card:

Don't those colors look happy together?!  The card base is Pumpkin Pie.  The MM DSP strip is from the Welcome Neighbor Pad that was available during SAB.  The PP DSP strip is from the Sweet Pea Pad that is available in the Occasions Mini catalog, through the end of April.  This is one of my all-time favorite DSP packs!  If you haven't ordered it yet, you should!!  So many great patterns in it.  The Ruby Red DSP is from the Autumn Tradition pack in the regular catalog.  The flower images are from a new stamp set called Awash With Flowers.  It is a sneek peak set that will be in the new catalog in July.  But the cool thing is you can get it now!  I LOVE this set so much more than I thought I would.  I bought it in Clear Mount and am so happy I did.  Expect to see lots more of this stamp set!  The sentiment comes from the On A Pedestal set.

That's it for today.  Come back tomorrow to see my creations for the ColourQ color challenge.  Yes, I did say creationS!  I never seem stop at just one card.  I don't think I'll do that every week, but Saturday is my stamping day and I just love to keep on stamping! 

I'm still tossing around the idea of starting my own challenge blog.  It would be an inspiration challenge, using party/entertaining ideas as inspiration.  I'm thinking of calling it Stampin' Celebration.  Whadya think?  Crazy huh!  I'll keep you posted of whether or not I go through with it.

Happy Stamping!
